So, every year for Mom’s birthday she gets extra-special treatment. In addition to the normal birthday festivities (opening her cards and presents, getting phone calls from her family, and eating yummy dessert), she also gets a fireworks show! How many people get to say that? I guess this is a benefit of being born on Independence Day.
We went up to Steve and Constanza’s house and watched Mom’s fireworks show from their house on the hill. Good food, good wine, and good company — what more could a person want?
Here are some photos of Mom opening her presents. Happy Birthday, Mom!
